First month in China

It’s been just over a month since we’ve lived in china, and I am in awe every single day. By this culture, by the people, by the views, by the fact that I’ve gained a sense of comfort in this place so different from home. I am amazed at the person I’ve grown into in just one month, the person Derek has grown into, and how much we have have grown together. And I am astonished that we still have another three months here.

I don’t have many words to describe the happiness I currently feel, all I know is that if I could give anyone advice at the moment it would be…  Buy that plane ticket, throw yourself into uncomfortable situations, immerse yourself in a new culture, befriend strangers, see the world. And most of all follow your dreams. Do it with someone you love, or don’t. Be happy with your decisions, regardless of other people’s opinions. Forget the rest.

We love you China, happy one month!
